Pepper Infused Olive Oil

This is one of the best ways to get all that pepper goodness into your cooking.  Pepper infused olive oil is simple and I use it all the time.

You will need:

Ye olde timey jar (optional, any jar will do)

A few of your favorite peppers

Good olive oil (now is not the time to cheap out on the olive oil)

Did I mention pepper infused olive oil is incredibly easy to make.  Just follow the steps blow.

1  Cut up your peppers into nice big rustic chunks (make sure you can fit them into the opening of the bottle you are using.)

2  Place the cut peppers into your jar.

3  Add olive oil to fill up your jar.

4  Put it in a cool dark place for about a week.

Now that you have your olive oil infused with your favorite pepper you can use it for dipping or cooking.  I hope you give this one a try because it truly does add a whole other layer to your cooking.
